Jerry Brown Asks Trump to Exempt California from Offshore Drilling Plan

Trump admin decides not to drill off Florida after Rick Scott lobbying

The Trump administration's decision to offer almost all coastal USA waters for oil and gas drilling won't interfere with the government's aggressive steps to lease those waters for possibly thousands of wind turbines, federal officials said. "Had Zinke cared about the wishes of coastal communities or how drilling off their coasts will affect them, he would have proposed a plan that shrinks drilling even further, not proposed expanding operations to almost every corner of our waters".

"This is something that all Californians are against." said Jennifer Savage, California Policy Manager for the Surfrider Foundation.

"This proposal mirrors past proposals that have run into a buzzsaw of state opposition", David Hayes, who was the Interior Department's deputy secretary and COO during periods of the Clinton and Obama administrations, told Inside Climate News, commenting on the initial draft plan proposal.

Scott is a political ally of President Donald Trump, who happens to own beachfront property in Florida. "If those governors would like to request meetings with the secretary, they are absolutely welcome to do so", she said.

It took approximately no time for leaders in other drilling-skeptical states to call Mr. Zinke on his words.

Trump Vows to Be 'Flexible' on NAFTA Ahead of Mexico's Election
Meat Export Federation (USMEF). -Canada relations and the NAFTA file - was not immediately available for comment. That means Mexico will essentially have paid for the wall, he said.

Zinke announced last week that the National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program for 2019-2024, which would flip the current status of being 94 percent off-limits to more than 90 percent available for drilling, would be "the right balance to protect our coasts and people while still powering America and achieving American energy dominance".

He said Georgia would have ample ammunition to make the case because of the "fragile nature of the Georgia coast and marshlands and possible negative impacts on jobs associated with tourism should there ever be an accident".

"It's another idea with big business in mind", he said.

No governor should. Will the Trump administration support one and oppose the others? He said he was concerned about military assets in Hampton Roads, which account for "nearly half" of the region's economy, and about the tourism and seafood industries.

On the West Coast, the governors of OR and Washington signaled that they'd like to be "off the table", too. "Oil spills and drilling infrastructure would be a awful legacy to leave our lovely coast and the communities and businesses that rely on oil-free beaches, marshes and ocean". The cost-benefit ratio calculation has been pushed away from drilling. In a press call, Virginia's junior U.S. Senator Tim Kaine also made the same request, and is not taking "no" as an answer.

"There's a lot of due diligence to do", Republican U.S. Sen.

If Florida's coasts are off-limits to oil drilling, so should the Jersey Shore, according to the entire 14-member Garden State congressional delegation. "It doesn't matter to me whether you're Republican or Democrat. We don't really know that yet", he said Thursday, "and eventually we're going to have to know that, in my opinion".

After hearing the news about Republican-governed Florida, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

In addition to Scott's sudden reversal of his previous position on offshore drilling, eight Republican representatives from Florida expressed their opposition and were joined by Sen.

"Offshore development has undergone rapid technological innovation ensuring it is cheaper, safer, and provides access to previously out-of-reach areas", the Senate letter stated.
